Abstract

The terrestrial ice limits of the Last Glacial Maximum ice sheets are well understood, but areas submerged during postglacial sea level rise have proved more difficult to accurately map. Fine grained diamicts in the Southern North Sea have been variously interpreted as glacial, glacioaqueous or periglacial in origin, implying different sedimentary environments. Micromorphology is presented as a useful technique to aid the analysis of such sediments, using systematic description of the physical characteristics of the sediments related to an interpreted seimic stratigraphy
